Samsung Galaxy Light (T-mobile) LTE Quad-Core 1.4GHz Cell Phone

4 out of 5 eggs OK Phone for the $$ 06/24/2014

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Light (T-mobile) LTE Quad-Core 1.4GHz Cell Phone

Pros: Nice size in hand and pocket, good processor speed, nice screen. Great battery life! Wi-Fi calling, can multitask even on phone calls.

Cons: Physical home button to easy to push by mistake, ear speaker can distort at mid-high volumes when using as a phone. No mass storage mode only connect as media device or camera modes. Camera quality sucks.... sorry no sugar coating that one.

Other Thoughts: The phone itself works well and has a lot of bang for the buck. The main issue I had with the phone was it had a hard time switching between LTE, WCDMA, and GSM. When it was connected to LTE network it worked great, but then when it tried to drop to 4G it would not make the jump correctly and would drop all the way to Edge (2G). I had to set it to only connect to WCDMA/GSM, which sets it to primarily 4G - once I did that it was very stable.

The other main issue I have is the physical home button is very easy to hit by mistake which then kicks you out of what you are doing. Also have to be careful with it in your pocket! As mentioned the camera quality is not great and is kind of clunky to use - if you take a lot of phone pictures this is not the phone for you.

On the plus side you get a quad core processor, that can multitask very well, and great battery life. I can read books, play games, stream music, and make calls all day long and the battery is generally above 20% when I plug it in to go to bed.

Most issues with the phone can be solved by googling the problem and finding out what settings to change. Most of the issues are specific to Samsung android phones in particular, and there are some annoying T-Mobil things but I am not docking the phone for T-Mobile's issues.

Nokia Lumia 521 (T-Mobile) 4G Dual-Core 1.0GHz Windows 8 OS Cell Phone Bundle with iLuv Portable Speaker Case & hypercel Car Charger

Pros: Phone is exactly what I hoped for - reliable, easy to use, good call quality, relatively fast. I got it as a first phone for my daughter. Plenty of oomph and features for a tween and still cheap enough on the pocket that if she loses or breaks it you aren't out a $600 iPhone!

Cons: Picks up fingerprints like it's a magnet! Hopefully I will solve that with a screen protector. Also the phone is entirely plastic, so buy a good rugged case to protect it from drops. The volume almost can be to loud - some concern about kid using earphones with this phone - it is really loud! Took one egg for the plastic feel and the screen being a fingerprint magnet.

Other Thoughts: Was supposed to be 4-7 business days for shipping - actually didn't even leave the warehouse until the 7th day! Then it got delayed - all total it took 3 weeks to show up! I know it's a bit out of Neweggs control, but I have never had that issue with any other Newegg orders in the past.

4 out of 5 eggs Tomato USB - For The Win! 01/03/2012

This review is from: Linksys E3000-RM 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router

Pros: Great signal, looks cool.

Cons: The Linksys firmware is useless!

Other Thoughts: Got this for a good deal on NewEgg ($49.99 w/ free shipping), and decided to give it a whirl. After reading all the reviews and other info on other sites I went into this planning on flashing it with the new TomatoUSB firmware.
One of my main goals was to set up my 2T hard drive as a network/media share between my desktop computer and my media player in my living room.
I tried messing around with the LinkSys firmware and and after a couple of hours gave up on it and loaded the TomatoUSB firmware. Tomato loaded fast, and once I plugged in my drive it showed up no problem.
